I have generated the graph, but i lost the settings, i would like to make the Plotmarkers slightly bigger. Is there anything to do this without redoing the computation?enter image description here

Like Show[%1,PlotMarker->{dot,10}] Slightly making the question more general and useful for other users! If i want to change other parameters... is there a general recipe / command somewhere we can find to make changes?

Here's a possibility. Copy the graphic into a new cell, type p1 = in front of the plot and evaluate the cell. Then, do

p1 /. Point[a__] :> {PointSize[0.2], Point[a]}

Here's a gif showing the procedure:

  • $\begingroup$ Very good! method ... Just wondering if if this method is true in general? If i want to change to plot marker symbol? or let's say now i regret my choice of axis from 0 to 0.5.. i want to plot from 0 to 6. $\endgroup$ – el psy Congroo Apr 28 '16 at 5:28
  • $\begingroup$ @elpsyCongroo. Some of these things you can do with Show; e.g. changing the plot range is as simple as Show[p1, PlotRange -> {0, 6}]. Changing the PlotMarkers on the fly is a lot more difficult. In that case, it might be better to just extract the points from the plot directly and make a new figure. There are many questions on this site about extracting the points in a plot. $\endgroup$ – march Apr 28 '16 at 15:16
